Question about 2003 Audi A4 Cabriolet

My 2003 A4 with 104K miles needs a new engine. Is this a good investment?

    Why does it need a new engine? You'd need to work out the market value of the car (with a good engine) and see if its more than the value of it now (not a lot) + the price of the complete repair.

You can't change the dash to read the number of miles on the new engine. It is illegal.

How sound of an investment is purchasing a 2014 Ford Taurus lmtd w/select shift and the 3.5l To VCT V6 FFV engine?


Personally when I buy a car, I buy one that is 3 to 4 years old with under 20,000 miles. You save around 40 to 50 % off the price of a new car. You also get a car that has a lot of life in it and is very reliable due to the very low miles on it. This is the best way to make a sound investment. No new cars make a sound investment, due to the very high depreciation in the first 3 or 4 years of ownership.

1998 Toyota T100 Should I buy a new engine if it has 515,000 on it original engine ?


Wow, thats alot of miles! How well does it run? Hopefully you have record of the parts that have been replaced allready. You could replace the engine with a new one, but how many miles are on the transmission, injectors, sensors, differentials, ect..? Maybe you could buy a wrecked truck with low miles, transfer most of the drivetrain and drive it another 500 k. The way I see it, if you invest $2,000.00 into the truck and can drive it for two years without any more major investments / repairs, you will have invested well...I hope this helps.

Air conditioner does not work


My wife 2003 Honda CRV did the same thing about 3 years ago with about 70k miles on the clock. Anyway, hot summer day, blowing hot air. I took the car to the dealership, they replaced the whole system under warranty even though the car was way past warranty period. Apparently, the AC system was defective, Honda will replace them on as-needed basis instead of recalling all of them. I was suprised they did all that for free. Try the dealership first. Good luck..

Looking to buy a 2003 ford expedition with 215.000 kms. how many more kms is the engine good for? should i buy it? thanks wondering.


If the engines of today are properly maintained, they are probably good for 200k+ miles (330k)..

Obviously, you'll want to do your homework on any vehicle that much "mileage" on it. Assuming it is a 5.4L in there, the one thing about the engine that you should know is that there have been issues with some of those model years blowing out spark plugs from the cylinder head due to a poor design.

Of course, you can probably read enough horror stories on any vehicle and any engine that will make you want to invest in a Schwinn or a Huffy... so go with your gut. If it looks good, mechanically checks out, you feel like the seller is being honest about it, and the price is right... go for it. Especially if you're in a situation where this is going to be a secondary vehicle that you're going to drive 10,000k - 15,000k/year.

2003 Saturn L200. Car will turn over but will not


I have the same model. Congrats you made it over a 100,000 miles! Most of them failed after as little as 20,000 or around 78,000 miles becaue there was a design flaw in that the timing chain did not get any oil to it. I had the 78,000 mile engine. Mine failed while driving at 65 miles an hour on the expressway. Pretty much wrecked the engine. The problem with putting in a used engine is that no other type of engine will fit in this car and you can count on engine failure again at 20,000; 78,000 or from what you tell me after 100,000 miles. You would be better off investing in a down payment for a Toyota made here in America that gets over 50 miles to the gallon. I used to be an oldsmobile man and then reluctantly switched to Saturn but am fed up with GM completely now and all american car manufactures.
